Okay, yes, I know this is not actually a slug. But we get those, too. And they're whoppers! I've seen slugs six inches long on my back patio after a good rain. This guy was exploring our patio door on a chilly, wet morning recently. The northwest is a perfect breeding ground for slugs and snails alike, and while I'm not really a fan of them, at least they don't move quickly or unpredictably. A word of advice, though: Never walk barefoot outside after dark around here. Stepping on these guys with bare feet is NOT a pleasant experience. I should know; I've done it twice.
